Phelps's Gore Constituency

Alarming News' Karol reveals that the odious Fred Phelps is a Democrat who was buddies with Al Gore during the 1980s and 1990s. (Don't be fooled by her entry's link to the dubious Wikipedia—the Wikipedia entry is backed by information from the pro-Gore Southern Poverty Law Center, among other sources.) Phelps was also a three-time candidate in Kansas's Democratic gubernatorial primary; the last time, in 1998, he won 15 percent of the vote.

Admittedly, there are haters on both sides of the fence—but, like Karol, I'm glad this one isn't a Republican.
